Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My brake lights work but when i turn on the headlights the tail lights do not work
The problem is with the connection from the light bulb holder to the socket that the bulb and holder go into. I believe on my 01 JGC it was the top light that was going out when i applied the brakes with the lights on. If you remove the light bulb holder in the tail light assembly and look at the area that the bulb and holder came from either the metal that makes contact with the holder for the bulb is depressed, or in my case it was cracked. You can use a small flat scewdriver to lift the metal in the tail light assembly, or as i did, i just put some tin foil on top of the metal, then reinstalled the bulb and holder ontop of the tin foil (this makes the elec. connection). seems like a rigged up solution, but made sense to me, and worked!

Solution # 3 worked. Apparently the assembly design in error allows the bulb to be put in backwards which causes the cotacts to be bent down. By rising the contacts in the holder the contact is reestabished. Also insure the bulb is placed in correctly. Thanks for your help!
